Starz Theater Company presents "Anastasia: The Musical" (Youth Edition)

Anya's past is a mystery. Her future is an adventure.

Anastasia: The Musical Is a spectacular new musical discovering who you are and who you’re meant to be. This dazzling show transports audiences from the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920s, as a brave young woman sets out to discover the mystery of her past. Pursued by a ruthless government officer determined to silence her, Anya enlists the aid of a dashing con man and a lovable ex-aristocrat. Together, they embark on an epic adventure to help her find home, love and family.

This musical includes favorite songs from the 1997 animated film such as “Journey to the Past”, “Paris Holds the Key to Your Heart” and “Once Upon a December”, as well as wonderful new songs from the Broadway production. The youth edition of Anastasia will be 90 minutes in length, including the pre-show and intermission.

Starz Theater Company is an award-winning theater company and a division of Turning Pointe School of Dance.  The STC cast of ANASTASIA includes over 75 students between the ages of 9-18 from the Colorado Springs Community.  Learn more about Starz Theater Company and the STC production of ANASTASIA at www.starztheater.org.

Special thanks to our Sponsors for Anastasia: Kent Glass, Aver Construction, Incline Accounting, and Petrie's Family Games

Anastasia is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals. www.concordtheatricals.com

When the eccentric Doctor Baliardo grows convinced of an advanced society on the moon, he insists that his daughters accept no earthly suitors and instead hold out for— you guessed it—moon-men.

In the time-honored tradition of young lovers, the daughters do what any of us would: recruit some bumbling servants, dress up as interstellar emissaries, and set out to con their way into Baliardo’s blessing as hijinks ensue!

Full of shenanigans and devoid of redeeming social value, Emperor of the Moon rounds out the season with joy and hilarity.

Aphra Behn’s Restoration romp sprinkled with a dash of classical commedia dell’arte farce will be set outdoors against the backdrop of the Colorado Springs summer.

Join director Kathryn Walsh (Little Women, Twelfth Night), local favorite, actor Sammie Joe Kinnett, and a stellar cast for it.

Directed by Kathryn Walsh, written by Aphra Behn

Starz Theater Company presents "Anastasia: The Musical" (Youth Edition)

Anya's past is a mystery. Her future is an adventure.

Anastasia: The Musical Is a spectacular new musical discovering who you are and who you’re meant to be. This dazzling show transports audiences from the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920s, as a brave young woman sets out to discover the mystery of her past. Pursued by a ruthless government officer determined to silence her, Anya enlists the aid of a dashing con man and a lovable ex-aristocrat. Together, they embark on an epic adventure to help her find home, love and family.

This musical includes favorite songs from the 1997 animated film such as “Journey to the Past”, “Paris Holds the Key to Your Heart” and “Once Upon a December”, as well as wonderful new songs from the Broadway production. The youth edition of Anastasia will be 90 minutes in length, including the pre-show and intermission.

Starz Theater Company is an award-winning theater company and a division of Turning Pointe School of Dance.  The STC cast of ANASTASIA includes over 75 students between the ages of 9-18 from the Colorado Springs Community.  Learn more about Starz Theater Company and the STC production of ANASTASIA at www.starztheater.org.

Special thanks to our Sponsors for Anastasia: Kent Glass, Aver Construction, Incline Accounting, and Petrie's Family Games

When the eccentric Doctor Baliardo grows convinced of an advanced society on the moon, he insists that his daughters accept no earthly suitors and instead hold out for— you guessed it—moon-men.

In the time-honored tradition of young lovers, the daughters do what any of us would: recruit some bumbling servants, dress up as interstellar emissaries, and set out to con their way into Baliardo’s blessing as hijinks ensue!

Full of shenanigans and devoid of redeeming social value, Emperor of the Moon rounds out the season with joy and hilarity.

Aphra Behn’s Restoration romp sprinkled with a dash of classical commedia dell’arte farce will be set outdoors against the backdrop of the Colorado Springs summer.

Join director Kathryn Walsh (Little Women, Twelfth Night), local favorite, actor Sammie Joe Kinnett, and a stellar cast for it.

Directed by Kathryn Walsh, written by Aphra Behn
